The Ladies need a place to lay…
and with Winter all to fast approaching,
and the hen's Castle having taken far to long to complete…
We decided to hold off on fancy this's and that's..
Mr. T came to the rescue!
He got wind that a neighbor might want to get rid of
those old nesting boxes
so he dragged me over to take a look see..
and I brought the camera
so Machine Man could take a look see
and I got some different angles because
HE can be particular with his questioning of things..
and my words don't always paint an accurate picture
in his minds eye
there was some hemming..
and some hawing
and some praying..
let's be real
and be honest..
we love FREE
and any chance to up cycle
we try to take
time to prettify
first he cut it down to a size we could use…
Then we pulled the boxes out and scrubbed them…
ok.. not WE
I should be fair..
we made them scrub them..
we are mean that way…
building up a work ethic and
all THAT jazz...
then we painted
looks a sight better in my opinion
the fella's finished out the frame inside
and the chicken wire…
now to INSTALL
looks fun don't you think?
they insert the little box things
and were not shy for helpers
of all shapes and sizes
eager to see how they could help
the whole team pitched in
Buddy brought the stacks of shelves
even Firecracker our wee cousin helped out!
i wonder if we were more excited or
here it is!
and there she goes..
hopefully to tell her Queenie friends
how SPECTACULAR the Castle is shaping up..
Buddy helping them find their way..
because we SIMPLY had to get it done…
we found some of these..
just laying about on the floor!
now our ladies can lay eggs in their
nice little nesting boxes!
yummy farm fresh eggs
